On Oil Industry Polluting Ventura?

Posted on November 6 at 3:42 p.m.

The property was originally planned as a resort (by Fess Parker in conjunction with the tribe). Now they say they only want to build homes there. If so, why did they not go through the process that any developer goes through? Taking this land as fee to trust signals a desire for more than just homes. But Armenta dismisses all opposition to expanding their ability to bypass county building codes as being racist.

The most notable community that voted for a fracking ban is Denton Texas which is considered the birthplace of fracking. They've had to live with the disastrous results and finally said no more. Hope Santa Barbara can learn from these communities and avoid what has ruined so many other places.

On Measure P Protects Santa Barbara County’s Future

Labor leaders said that for years workers have had safety concerns about the process, which they described as inherently dangerous because injecting steam at high pressures to coax oil from the porous earth can create a minefield of craters-in-waiting.

On Extreme Extraction Danger

"Ummm... It's only in your dreams that cyclic steam injection has problems. The fact is there has never been a problem with steam injection in SB county *ever*."

But there has in Kern County which is what Yes on P proponets are trying to protect our county from becoming. Or we can wait til disaster strikes and it is too late to do anything to reverse the damage.

Never forget the employee at a Kern County field where the practice of high-pressure steam injected into the ground is common. He was sucked underground and boiled to death. The company was fined $350.

P is for protecting our county from the disaster that has visited to our neighboring county. Thanks to the oil industry.
